4th of July At the Edge of Texas

We headed out for a 3-night stay for 4th of July weekend with friends (and family of one of my friends). Checked off another park from the bucket list. It was an amazing, fun and relaxing time. This park is highly recommended by Tom & Stacie of RV Texas Y’all and I can see why. I'll have to come back in Winter and check it out in the off season. I like staying more than just 2 nights in a location, so this was a nice extended weekend.

The park was nice and had great amenities, but many times, what makes a great trip is the company you keep. Had a blast with my friends! (No pun intended) Laughter is good medicine.
